The Chinese government has decided that the world’s athletes are atheists – or will be during the 2008 Beijing Games. Organizers for the 2008 Olympics in China have released their list of items banned from the Olympic village where the athletes will stay. Amongst the Prohibited Items is The Bible. The athletes are also to be forbidden to wear or carry any kind of religious symbol at Olympic facilities.
Where do these freaks get off telling people they can’t bring religious texts and symbols to the Olympic village? Could someone explain to me why the world is letting the godless Evil Old Men in Beijing host the Olympics?
